Meeting the challenges of sports broadcasting in 2021

There is no doubt that 2020 has been a game-changing year for the world of professional sports. It has certainly presented challenges, but it has also offered opportunities for innovation in ways to enhance the online viewing experience for fans. As live sports returned after a delayed start, the mostly empty stadiums allowed experimentation with camera placement to offer online viewers new ways to experience games.

This will benefit sports fans as traditional broadcasters and OTT streaming providers find ways to differentiate their services.
